Here comes the Bride

And yes. this was fun, just like playing with Barbie dolls!  Best part is that you can snag this and any of Lindsays other fabulous sets for 40% off on Thursday 4/26/2012.  Lindsay made this awesome Printable and SVG set called Beautiful Gown and Favor,  I love it!  Thank you Lindsay, I hope you will sell a lot since you were so sweet to make the set.  She let me make the pieces for the cover. =)  I used the SVG to cut the dress, and I used the printable to cut the vellum overlay, my cricut is on it's last leg!  I embossed the vellum then added the lace to the skirt.  I used the same lace with the veil and added lots of rhinestones, just because!  I used my Perfect Layers rulers to get the nice clean borders, love that tool!  I used some foam mounting tape under the dress to give it some lift.  I don't think you can see it, but there is a piece of  sheer tulle under the lace veil.  The white dress on the white embossed background did not pop that much, so I added a little Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen.  This photo makes the envie liner and the antique linen look much deeper than they really are.  
 I am linking up to Make it Monday , and a really big thanks to all the ladies on the DT who make this possible and take the time to visit us.   Mary J, Rene, Lisa M, Shirley Anne, Chrissy, Michelle, Karen and Kerrie.

    You can do anything with paper. Such a talent.

    Hope the weather is good there. I see you had some cool days. We hit 90 today. I guess summer will be here soon.
